About The Facility
Our facility is located on a 40-acre ranch in Paso Robles, California.
Two outdoor arenas, round pen and an indoor arena with trail rides available on site. There are 12 stalls in the ‘old barn’, 7 out-building stalls, and 5 stalls in the new barn. Horses are turned out in pastures during the day. The ‘lower’ barn is where we host our events and our shoeing services.
Job Description
EponaMind is looking for a reliable and physically fit horse person to assist us at our spacious equine facility. Our facility is not a show barn, but a research center devoted to the horse’s well-being. EponaMind is centered on the study of the hoof and equine biomechanics. Our barn facility offers shoeing services along accredited educational events.
The position consists in much more than just riding - such as groundwork, lunging and long lining, and work in hand. The focus is to teach the horses the correct framework to work in (on the ground and under saddle) as well as supple them in order to compensate for their weaknesses (natural or man-made) and enhance their wellbeing. All the work is oriented towards the natural functioning of the horse (likewise with our research).
Job Requirements
Applicants with an interest in equine biomechanics and horsemanship are warmly welcomed. Basic knowledge of classical dressage is a plus. Applicants must be open-minded and willing to learn and apply training guidelines from our established instructors/researchers. Data is routinely collected on the horses during their training sessions. It would be an added bonus if the applicant feels comfortable setting up cameras and other equipment.
Work with smart and pleasant people on a beautiful property. You will have an opportunity to learn all kinds of things related to the horse. Salary is dependent on your experience and skill level.
Description of Housing Provided
On-site housing may be available as an option.
